May I humbly suggest an "unmusical": inspired by a tune of the author's choice.

Here's an idea: Ubergirls getting dressed or undressed in an unusual manner.

-an un/lucky day for an ubergirl

-a day in the life of a kluzty/ditzy/quirky supergir

Here's a good one, I think. Motivation. What motivates your ubergirls, good or evil to do the things they do? What goes through their mind as they live out thier days?

Another frisbee: a story of a exotic ubergirl. Something not instantly recognisable as human but not unattractive or so utterly alien than you cannot relate to her. Or at least have some kind of understanding, no matter how small...(i think i brought this up many times, but never got the proper way to say it...)

Or, going along with whitepaw's idea: a theme song/poem/ballad for an ubergirl, doesn't matter if it is not original.

I actually like WhitePaw's suggestion the best so far. I've thought about writing based on several songs in the past, but I just haven't gotten around to doing it. I'd definitely get in on a workshop with that theme.

Given the wide variety of musical tastes, though, I'd say that authors should be encouraged to include the complete lyrics to the song to give others a point of reference, without it counting towards the 1000 word limit. That is, assuming it's just a page of lyrics before or after the story. Incorporating them into the story should make them count towards the limit.

Just my two cents worth. No new suggestions from me this time around.

It's quiet... too quiet.

Any more suggestions? Lfan, have you made a decision?

How about an Ubergirl thinking back to her First Mission or the first time that she used her powers for good or evil?

Along the same lines: An ubergirl's first public appearance. Could be told from her p.o.v. or from that of a bystander. Or show how the news media might report the event.
